We keep on turning #wedraaiendoor : Dancing on the streets by David Bowie and Mick Jagger
Tuesday Anne brought her weekly post for #wedraaiendoor, the music ping pong we do between our 2 blogs. She surprised me by jumping from Doe Maar to Men without hats with Safety Dance.
Ha, glorious song though and quite a weird but fun video. I had never seen it before.
So I looked up the song a bit more to try to understand the why of the lyrics or the video. Well, I couldn't explain the video but I learned that the song was written after the singer had been thrown out of a night club. That happened because he'd dance pogo style (New Wave) instead of Disco.
So my turn. What to choose now after Safety Dance?
What I didn't choose:
- Blues brothers (= Men with hats!!) : Everybody needs somebody
- Men at work (maybe with or without hats) : Down under
- Deborah Harry: She explains pogo dancing to Americans in an old video....very appropriate link but not really a song so not ok here but it's a must see video!!
- Whitney Houston : I wanna dance with somebody....ok but bleh
- David Bowie: Let's dance
Because...if you are thrown out of your nightclub for weird dancing, we can always go dancing on the streets!!
